Why it's a great idea:
It is a great idea as it will provide food support for people who may otherwise go hungry. People in our community should not go hungry in the 21st century. It will boost confidence of single parents as it will provide cooking skills and help people gain confidence and useful experience. This project will bring people together as it can be a meeting point for members of the community to cook, eat, socialise and get help on a range of issues. The extra rooms that we have can be adapted for different use. This will become a meeting place for people of Laindon who need a helping hand. The work to be done here will transform the Laindon Shopping Centre area as more people will be drawn to the area.
Steps to get it done:
